-Pastel Green over Green leather interior, Green Carpeting and Black tonneau, 3.4 Liter DOHC Inline 6-Cylinder engine with Twin SU Carburetors producing 180 HP at 5,000 RPM, 4-speed manual gearbox, matching numbers.

The initial 242 production XK120's were hand-built with aluminum bodies on ash framing and constructed between late 1948 and early 1950. To meet fervent demand, to commence with the 1950 model year, all subsequent XK120's were mass-produced with pressed-steel bodies, while retaining aluminum doors, bonnet, and boot lid. The Jaguar XK120 was dubbed the first production car to reach 120MPH.

This XK-120SE, SE denoting that was factory fit with larger camshafts, wire wheels and twin exhaust, was up by 20BHP over standard car. It was built on 27 August 1953 and shipped to to famed Jaguar distributor Max Hoffman in New York. It was then sold new to its first owner, Mr. Charles Krauss of Cresskill New Jersey, on 27 January 1954. This example was extensively restored in the early 1990's, leaving no stone unturned. It included the refurbishment of every mechanical component and cosmetic refinishing to an exceedingly high standard in its original colors of Pastel Green with suede green interior and painted wire wheels.

This XK-120SE is offered with its jack, air pump, tool kit, spare wheel/tire assembly, and full black tonneau cover. A stunning period color combination in excellent mechanical and cosmetic condition throughout, it is eligible for numerous vintage rallies throughout the USA and the world including the Millie Miglia. This exceptional Jaguar would be equally at home on the show field or local cars and coffee gathering alike.
